Why is there an Android robot urinating on an Apple logo on Google Maps?

Now that's a question we didn't think we'd be asking ourselves today.

Or ever. 

But - at the time of writing - an image of Android's usually friendly little droid can be seen quite clearly emptying itself on an Apple logo.

First spotted by Google blog Cult of Android, the mid-relief robot has yet to find an adequate explanation - with The Guardian noting that the droid sits a few miles east of another map tweak that states "Google review policy is crap".

Both features were most likely added using Google's Map Maker tools - a feature that allows users to annotate maps with useful details or information on points of interest. While Google moderates all additions made with the Map Maker, these two gems would appear to show that its processes aren't foolproof.

All of which means that somewhere, a Google moderator is having a good nervous sweat.

Let us know if you spot any more edits in your Google map travels.
